Information Technology

The practice keeps patients’ records in both computerised and paper form.

We ask you for information about yourself, so that you can receive proper care and treatment.

We keep this information recorded as it greatly assists us with your care.

Should you have a diagnosis such as IHD, asthma or diabetes your name may be added to a computerised register specifically for such patients.

This information may be shared with other members of the NHS.

Whenever we can, we shall remove details, which identify you. The sharing, of some types of very sensitive personal information is strictly controlled by law.

Should you have any concerns about any aspects of confidentiality, information being held about you.

Please remember we are here to listen, not to tell. We provide a confidential service to all our patients, including under 16’s. This means that you can tell others about your visit – we won’t!

3rd parties have a legal duty to keep your information confidential.
